It seems that my fairly recent 1876 carbine came from the factory with a positive carrier slam down, which I find to be surprising. The carrier arm doesn't have a screw installed, but appears to be shaped to slam the carrier down.  Has anyone else encountered that?  Is that a new Uberti feature, or did I receive some kind of mutant?  Not that I'm complaining...

I was going through some old books I inherited and found this folded up and tucked between the pages. I guess someone put it there for safe keeping. I opted to have it framed.

Hard to make out, but it's naming one of my ancestors head of the militia in Massachusetts in 1704. Signed by Joseph Dudley and countersigned Isaac Addington. Still can't believe I found it; could just as easily have been lost forever.

I agree completely, Texas was infested with them carpetbaggers and Union Republicans who stripped the State of it's 2nd amendment and added in Article 23 to the Constitution so Texas citizens and the newly freed slaves could be controlled much better. Those same carpetbaggers from Mexico (today) and current band of Republicans in the Houses of Legislature ARE STILL THERE and will not let go of Article 23. Constitutional Carry will not happen as long as our Mexican style of state control stays in office.
 

All the more reason for the President's Wall, deportations and enforcement of our immigration laws so the right kind of people move to Texas to actually be Texans.  

After 100 years of Hollywood, political correctness and propaganda, but we have forgotten what an aggressive country Mexico is not just to Texas but to all of the United States.   Patriotism and heritage may have been forgotten by a lot of our citizens but I promise you Mexican people have not.  They still identity with their country and their politics and have no interest in being Texans, Americans or even old Tejanos.    Look up La Reconquista of La Raza.   They believe Texas and the rest of America belong to their country.  Furthermore their national saying is "Mexico for the Mexicans".    The whole country may not be all militant about that but they are taught that from cradle to grave.   They are even aggressive and nationalistic against other latin American people.

There are no wild turkeys across the big pond. So, good luck to you.

What about the wood grouse, aka Auerhahn, or Tjadertupp

I've heard that 8 grains of brass has the same volume as 1 grain of smokeless. I usually weigh a sample of each headstamp. If weights are very close, it makes no matter. In HOT rifle loads, I use a particular headstamp for each load. It does two things; 1. It helps to ID each load, especially when carrying more than one type, and 2. the risk of an overload is minimized.

I sort my pistol brass the same way, but keep track of which headstamps weigh close to the same as other groups of headstamps, just because I have a neat AWS 100 that makes it dead easy. For loads, in pistol especialy, where max loads are not at issue, it makes no matter. ( For BP loads I have a couple of brands of brass cases I like to load, especially the ones selected for match use. For practise loads I  will use up any nickel cases I have around, plus much of the near wore-out, & small lots of misc. cases.)

I have lots of time on my hands! Wink

Shot an original 1905 in .45 ACP once, but never that one.  Sounds like fun!

I think someday is now- seems some people are in to building "M16A-1" style AR rifles. Some of the originals are over 50 years old now.
C&R eligible.

I've shot mixed brass straight wall pistol cartridge loads for years.  All of them shot better than I could hold, even back when I was a much better shot.  You probably don't want to do it if you're at the upper edges, pressure-wise, though.
